    Summary

    The school was a flaming dragon in a world where darkness grew. 
    The moon was a floating kelpie of alabaster hue. 
    The towers stood up like watchmen in famous tales of yore 
    And the Headmaster came walking—
         Walking—walking—
    The Headmaster came walking down an old corridor.

    Summary

    Daryl's bike dies on him in the middle of nowhere, so he walks the miles into town. He turns down the first road with a home at the end, a single candle burning in an upstairs window. He doesn't expect a welcome greeting but neither does he expect the greeting he does receive - nor the young woman it came from.

    Summary

    Young Bess is not a lady of noble status or birth. She is nothing more than a drunkard landlord's daughter, working and toiling every day just to keep food on the table. When she encounters a highwayman who promises her the world, she becomes enraptured and falls under his spell. But not all is as it seems behind those warm, blue eyes that promised her all. A highwayman, a girl, and a stable boy. A story of love, seduction, and the sweetest pain that love can cause.

    Summary

    Cool was the breeze in the evening, along the darkened street.
    The city was retiring, closing shutters at every suite.
    But even in that stillness, you could hear the faintest sound,
    Of the music that was playing -
         playing, swaying -
    The music faintly playing from the jazz band underground.
